Number format issue Access 2007

Access 2007.

I've created a database with a number input and I'm getting the following 
errors.

I've formatted a field as
Number
Field Size: Single
Format: Currency
Decimal Places: 0

I'm getting the following results
Input 2,065,000,000 but it's rounding it to 2,064,999,936
Input 2,682,000,000 but getting rounded to 2,681,999,872

Any ideas on the reason for this? Do I have that field formatted properly?

You help is GREATLY appreciated!

Single is a floating point type.
Accuracy is only 7 or 8 significant digits.
More info:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Floating_point#Accuracy_problems

If you want to store large numbers as per your entry, consider using a 
Currency field, a Double, or a Decimal field.

Dear Excel, I have the ultimate challenge: to do job books for 8,000 employees. The form is completed, but the request is to make booklets of 52 pages for each employee.

Dialog focus issues
Hi all, I have a problem with a standard modal dialog. If the dialog is shown sometimes it doesn't have the focus though it seems to have it. The dialog is active and the caret is also visible in the input field I have on that dialog. But somehow all key events are sent to a window behind the modal dialog. The dialog is modal and has no parent. It is shown in front of all other windows and must have the focus. I tried setting the focus explicitly, to a input field, using SetFocus() but that doesn't solve my problem. The focus is set in the OnInitDialog method I can't real...

Rounding numbers to the nearest thousand
Simple question (i hope) Is there a simple way i can round numbers to the nearest thousand by using the format cells command.

Not the comma at the end - this tells Excel to display as thousands (two commas here will display as millions). Note that 1,234.56 will display as 1 (thousand) not 12. "...
